Children change every day, physically, cognitively, and emotionally.
Categorizing the ways in which children grow and change is a helpful way to keep track of the many ways children develop, and it gives some insight into how they learn and mature. We do this by looking at developmental milestones – things most children can do at a certain age – and associating these milestones with five different developmental stages:
- Motor & Physical
- Cognition & Perception
- Social & Emotional
- Adaptive & Self Care
- Communication & Language
As your child grows, you can play and participate in activities with them that will encourage and support their development. This wheel shows an activity to do together that relates to each Stage of Development at different ages.
